DIY Interchangeable Door Wreath
I have always wanted some nice wreaths to hang on my front door. But I did not want to pay upwards to $40 for one. Specially when the ones you buy are just for one particular holiday or season. Where do you keep them all? I have enough trouble trying to find room for all my indoors decorations for the holidays. So I finally decided to try making my own wreath. I had the bright idea of trying to make the items I put on the wreath detachable so I can change them out for the different holidays and seasons when I wanted to.
The first thing I had to do was find the supplies I needed. We went to my local craft store and looked around for the main components: wreath, flowers, and wooden letter. After deciding what flowers I wanted I was ready to bring them home and figure out how I was going to do this.
I started with grouping the flowers together. Instead of cutting them off to glue to the wreath itself I decided to bend the bunch of flowers close to the top where the flowers were. Then I added washi tape around them to hold them all together. I did have to cut the stems down a bit because they were very long and I did not want them sticking out on the wreath.
The next step was to attach the flowers and accent pieces I picked up to the wreath. With the type of wreath I bought I was able to weave the stems of the flowers and accent pieces into the wreath. I then took safety pins (show above) and clipped parts of the stems of the flowers down to the wreath. This way they are not glued down. Now I can take them off when I wish and add new flowers to the wreath for the next holiday.
Here are the flowers I choose for the fall season and into October.
I also picked up a hanging small oval chalk board as well. This I hung in the middle by attaching it with another safety pin. The wooden letter I did glue onto the wreath. The letter is for our Family’s last name, so that can always stay there and I will just change out the flowers.
I love that I can add any message I please to the middle too! 🙂
